Five Years



Today Corey and I celebrate our fifth anniversary. It is kind of surreal that we have been married that long, well past the newlywed stage at this point. That day five years ago was absolutely perfect in every way. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day but what's more important is that it symbolized the start of a life together and I feel so fortunate that Corey and I are able to do life together. Without a doubt, there is no one better suited to be my partner.


It has definitely not always been easy and some days, months, and even years have been better than others. But, that is what you sign up for when you choose to spend your life with someone - to walk by their side through all life throws your way and I'm happy to say that even five years later, I feel like I chose wisely.

Kale and Peach Summer Salad


Last summer we hosted our favorite neighbors from our previous neighborhood to grill out at our new house. One of our neighbors is a professional chef and he brought this incredible kale and peach salad along for the evening. I'm not usually a fan of kale but this salad totally transformed my thinking on that. It is seriously so good and nutritious, too! This is the perfect summer salad so I set out to recreate it this summer and it has been on repeat in our household. I can't promise this is exactly how our chef neighbor made it but it is pretty darn close and totally delicious. This is by far my husband's favorite salad and that really says something when he's constantly asking for it!
